    Hi folks,

    I bought a vintage stone sink, from 1920 I'm told (picture below) which I intend to use for an outdoor kitchen. I'm wondering, do I need to support this across its entire width or can I just support it either end. I.e. do I need to build a slab under it or can I just support it at either end with a cinderblock support? I don't think it would make any difference, but I happen to live in the south of France.

    Thanks in advance

    As I recall in little old Victorian houses the sink in what tended to be called "the scullery" rather than kitchen;). The sink was on two piles of brick either end, no harm though in running some extra support along the underside of the back too though.

    These are the ones I remember(y)
